While fascinating in their own right, I found it hard to understand them. For example, the Baghdad battery is introduced on page I’d’ve given it 5 stars if each item discussed had been more in depth, but then the book would have to have been published in volumes.

Pickover’s primary interest is in finding new ways to expand creativity by melding art, science, mathematics, and other seemingly disparate areas of human endeavor. So the Baghdad battery article shouldn’t even be there because it’s not even a milestone that has contributed to the humanity al any particular aspect.

The examples illustrate the tremendous power of physics to both explain and practically enrich the world around us, at every different scale and dimension that we can conceive.

My only complaint is that it became unreasonably time consuming and costly- each time I read about an interesting concept, I ended up buying a book on it, researching it online, or finding another way to spend hours learning about the subject.

These ideas span a tremendous breadth, from the simplistic truss to the abstractions of chaos theory, from Lists with This Book. Turns out there is both physical curving and optical illusions involved. The problem is that each item is only given 1 small page of text and a picture.
